Moving Image Preservation of Puget Sound was formed to help preserve audiovisual heritage in the Pacific Northwest by assisting heritage organizations with the conversion of analog video recordings to digital formats according to archival best practices. The consortium was founded by Rachel Price, executive director; Anne Frantilla, City Archivist at Seattle Municipal Archives; Hannah Palin, Film Archives Specialist at the University of Washington Libraries, Special Collections; and Carol Shenk, formerly King County Archivist at King County Archives. After three years of planning, MIPoPS received its 501(c)(3) status in 2015. MIPoPS supports videotape digitization and preservation by heritage organizations with neither the resources nor expertise to address these at-risk materials.
